Within 24 hours, by Sunday morning, nearly 76 centimeters of snow fell in Northern California. Several roads have been closed, including 112 km of Interstate 80 in Nevada.
Southern California was hit with so much rain and storms that many streets were flooded. The storm cut power lines and deprived tens of thousands of people of electricity.
Six states – Nevada, Utah, Idaho, Montana, Colorado and California – have issued avalanche warnings.
Power outages have already occurred in Northern California, as well as in Washington and Oregon. Snowfall is accompanied by severe frosts, and the expected temperature may be below 48 ° C there.
The National Weather Service (NWS) in Reno, Nevada, warned that snowstorms will last until at least Monday or Tuesday. Traveling, especially in mountainous areas, can be difficult for a few more days.
